Clean Air Act Under Attack in the US Senate
To the surprise of no one, The Clean Air Act is under siege in theSenate. Fortunately, four amendments attacking our clean air each failed to get the required 60 votes to pass in yesterday’s sessions. But I was a bit shocked to see that 17 democrats sided with big polluters andradical republicans, and cast at least one vote to undermine the CleanAir Act’s ability to limit carbon pollution. What’s even more alarmingis that several democrats — Jay Rockefeller, Debbie Stabenow, SherrodBrown, and Max Baucus — were actually the sponsors of three of the fouranti Clean Air Act amendments.
